New boat

Filed under:General — eric @ 4:45 am

I’ve already learned in my five months along the river that sometimes the water brings you things.

This week, it brought us a kayak. Not a nice one, but one without any holes. And the previous owners were thoughtful ewnough to slip two paddles inside before leaving it too close to the edge, somewhere upriver from us.

It’s a bit too small for me, but that didn’t stop me from playing with it last night. I sat high up, making the system most unstable. I rolled several times, got wedged insode once, and generally looked like a doofus. But it was fun, and that’s the whole point of living along the river.
